UI and Macro

Jan 20 Welcome! Please read! Welcome to the UI and Macro forum! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss user interface customizations for World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy, so we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en/community/conduct) and guidelines (https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20752671773) before posting. Important Reminders: Search The search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely effective and robust. Before you create a new forum topic, please be use it to search for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer for which you are looking. Making a new thread on an existing subject can result in your thread being deleted or, if you continue to re-post the same content, the loss of your forum privileges for spamming. Rating The forum rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, demote unhelpful comments, and even report posts that violate the forum Code of Conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with several options, including a "thumbs up" (Like) and a "thumbs down" (Dislike) icon. Clicking the "thumbs up" icon will rate the post up. If enough people like a post, it will gain a Highly Rated status and appear at the top of related search results. Highly Rated posts will also have a highlighted background. Clicking the "thumbs down" icon will expand a drop-down menu which will include "Dislike," "Trolling, "Spam" and "Report" options. "Dislike" will rate the post down. If enough people dislike a post, it will be darkened, and with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden completely. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of a violation. Please note that you can only rate each post once. Use your power wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Have fun posting on these forums, and good luck with your adventures in Azeroth! Guidelines In addition to the forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en-us/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft. The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net, or Blizzard Entertainment are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, and/or non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words "Blizzard," "Blue," or any community team members' names in a thread topic is frowned upon. Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that; however, use of such words in the subject line does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Posting "First" or IBTL ("in before lock") constitutes as spamming. You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL ("in before the lock") is not helpful, and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Do not "bump" posts. The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming. This also includes bumping very old threads for no reason (called "necro bumping" or "necroing"). Petition posts are frowned upon. These are discussion forums and, as such, we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Do not post about locked or deleted threads. Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It's up to you to read the forum Code of Conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules. There is also cool down period we institute during times of high forum traffic. If you are violating policy during one of these times due to frustration, you will be given a three-hour cool down suspension. This does not get logged on your record and is simply in place to keep the forums readable and civil. Serious violations will still have the appropriate action taken against them as documented in the Code of Conduct, and we do keep track of these cool down periods separately—if one is found to be repeatedly violating policy, appropriate action will be taken.Kaivax0 Jan 20
Jul 12 FAQ: Installing & Troubleshooting AddOns How to Install AddOns for World of Warcraft - By Unkle of Grounding Totem, US Kirin Tor - With a tip of the hat to Lopeppeppy for her original guide. When AddOns are properly installed, a new button appears in the lower left corner of the character selection screen of World of Warcaft, labeled AddOns. If you do not see this button, your AddOn is not properly installed or no AddOns are installed at all. - Where to Get AddOns Always download your AddOns from a reputable source. The author of this guide recommends you use the following sites for most of your AddOn needs. ● WoWInterface.com - http://wowinterface.com/ ● Curse.com - http://curse.com/ - Extracting your AddOns AddOns are delivered in compressed files to save space on hosting sites servers and to reduce the amount of time it takes you to download them. They are commonly in .zip format with some .rar format files. Windows and Macintosh computers have native support for .zip files. If your AddOn is compressed in .rar format, you will need another program to open them. Your web browser may also be able to open compressed files for you automatically after they are downloaded. For Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 users I suggest 7-Zip. ● http://www.7-zip.org/ For Mac OSX users I suggest The Unarchiver. ● http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/apps/unarchiver.html When the AddOn is extracted, you should have a folder that is named the AddOn’s name. ... Some AddOns have sub-folders inside their main folder. This is fine, and you should leave them there. Some AddOns are called one name, but are really multiple AddOns delivered together. When this happens, you download a compressed file that has several folders in it. ... - Where to Put AddOns Once You’ve Extracted Them AddOns belong in the following folder: World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns ... Put the folder you extracted into the correct folder for your operating system. Correctly installed, my example AddOn, Fane, looks like this: ● Windows XP C: \Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Fane [C:] (or which ever drive you have the game installed on) |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane ● Windows Vista or Windows 7 C:\Users\Public\Games\ World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Fane Windows Vista or Windows 7 [C:] |----Users |----Public |----Games |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane ● Mac OSX [Macintosh Hard Drive]../World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/Fane [Macintosh Hard Drive] |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane The most common issue with why your AddOn won't load. If you have an extra folder layer in the mix, your AddOn won't load. [C:] |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane1234567 <-- Extra Folder. Bad folder. No biscuit. |----Fane More Installing Resources: ● WoWInteface.com’s Instatll FAQ: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/faq.php?faq=install#faq_howto_install ● WoWInteface.com’s Image of Correctly installed AddOns: http://www.wowinterface.com/storage/faq/correct.gif ● Seerah’s excellent YouTube video for installing AddOns (using WinZip on Windows XP). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dylXGXET8OA - What to Do When Something Goes Wrong ● Make sure AddOns are in the correct directory. - Do you have more than one copy of WoW installed? If so, did you put the AddOns in the right copy’s folder? This is especially important if you install multiple copies of the game, or you’re installing the game from DVD after a major expansion such as Wrath of the Lich King or Cataclysm. You can right-click on the icon you use to launch WoW (Windows) or use "CMD+I" (Mac OSX) to get the properties for the short cut. The properties will tell you the "Target" of the shortcut (or alias) which is where your copy of WoW is installed. - Did you extract the AddOn correctly? Make sure you are unzipping/uncompressing your addons. WinZip, WinRar, 7zip, The Unarchiver and StuffIt (for Mac) are common unzipping programs. See the section above on Extracting Your AddOns. WinZIP users: You must make sure the option to "Use Folder Names" is checked or WinZIP will just extract the files and not make the proper sub-folders. - Did you accidentally get an extra folder layer? If you have a folder called something like AddOnName6.01.01 with folders under that named like the examples above, you’ve copied the wrong things to your AddOns folder. See the section above on Extracting Your AddOns. ● I used the Repair Tool and now my AddOns are gone! When the repair tool is run the Interface and WTF folders get renamed with the date added to the file name. This means those AddOns won't get loaded. You can simply rename the folders without the date. If the problem that caused you to run the Repair Tool was being caused by a rogue AddOn you’ll have the problem again if you do this. ● Don’t install AddOns while WoW is running. WoW doesn't register addon changes until you exit the game and restart it. Save yourself some frustration and install only when you’ve completely exited the game. Log in to check them, log back out as necessary to fix things. ● My AddOns didn’t load after a patch! From the character select screen, click the AddOns button. In the upper right corner of the AddOns screen, check the "Load Out of Date Addons" box.Unkle346 Jul 12
Jul 12 AddOn Development Reference (PLEASE DO NOT POST QUESTIONS IN THIS THREAD, USE THE FORUM FOR QUESTIONS) While there are numerous sites available with WoW UI API Documentation, there are a number of useful features that aren't exactly API calls, but are really useful to AddOn developers. Extracting UI Files (coming shortly given cataclysm changes) Lua File Arguments Whenever WoW loads and runs an AddOn's .lua file (not including saved variables), it passes in two parameters which can be accessed via the ... token: local addonName, addonTable = ...; The addonName is the name by which WoW is referring to the AddOn, based on the capitalization of the AddOn's .toc file. The addonTable is a private table which is sent to every file in a particular AddOn (but is distinct from the table sent to other AddOns). The game maintains no global registry of these tables, so it's garbage collected if not used, and an AddOn must grab its own reference to use it later. Iriel15 Jul 12
Nov 16, 2010 UI Add-On Development Policy 7/15/2009 Music Distribution through UI Add-Ons We have recently seen a number of User Interface Add-Ons that are making modifications to the World of Warcraft in-game music files and wanted to take a moment to go over some important points with the community in connection with this. While we are currently allowing Add-Ons that remove or replace existing sound files, keep in mind that it is illegal to distribute copyrighted materials, in this case in-game music and audio files, without authorization. One of the primary goals of the user interface is to allow players to customize their game experience and we hope to avoid making any modifications in the future that will prevent this. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4/13/2009 UI Add-On Development Policy Update On March 20, we released the new add-on development policy to the public as an ongoing effort to help ensure add-on integrity, safety, and quality for the community. Since that time we have been in touch with many UI development communities on what the policy means to them and the continuing development of these add-ons. We would like to announce further that we are providing a sixty-day grace period beginning at the time of the initial release of the policy for UI developers to comply with the new policy. After May 19th, Blizzard Entertainment will begin to enforce the Add-on Development policy, and developers found to be in violation of this policy will be contacted directly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- World of Warcraft User Interface Add-On Development Policy With the continuing popularity of World of Warcraft user interface add-ons (referred to hereafter as "add-ons") created by the community of players, Blizzard Entertainment has formalized design and distribution guidelines for add-ons. These guidelines have been put in place to ensure the integrity of World of Warcraft and to help promote an enjoyable gaming environment for all of our players - failure to abide by them may result in measures up to and including taking formal legal action. 1) Add-ons must be free of charge. All add-ons must be distributed free of charge. Developers may not create "premium" versions of add-ons with additional for-pay features, charge money to download an add-on, charge for services related to the add-on, or otherwise require some form of monetary compensation to download or access an add-on. 2) Add-on code must be completely visible. The programming code of an add-on must in no way be hidden or obfuscated, and must be freely accessible to and viewable by the general public. 3) Add-ons must not negatively impact World of Warcraft realms or other players. Add-ons will perform no function which, in Blizzard Entertainment's sole discretion, negatively impacts the performance of the World of Warcraft realms or otherwise negatively affects the game for other players. For example, this includes but is not limited to excessive use of the chat system, unnecessary loading from the hard disk, and slow frame rates. 4) Add-ons may not include advertisements. Add-ons may not be used to advertise any goods or services. 5) Add-ons may not solicit donations. Add-ons may not include requests for donations. We recognize the immense amount of effort and resources that go into developing an add-on; however, such requests should be limited to the add-on website or distribution site and should not appear in the game. 6) Add-ons must not contain offensive or objectionable material. World of Warcraft has been given a "T" by the ESRB, and similar ratings from other ratings boards around the world. Blizzard Entertainment requires that add-ons not include any material that would not be allowed under these ratings. 7) Add-ons must abide by World of Warcraft ToU and EULA. All add-ons must follow the World of Warcraft Terms of Use and the World of Warcraft End User License Agreement. 8) Blizzard Entertainment has the right to disable add-on functionality as it sees fit. To maintain the integrity World of Warcraft and ensure the best possible gaming experience for our players, Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to disable any add-on functionality within World of Warcraft at its sole discretion. For more information... If you are an add-on developer and have any questions about and this User Interface Add-On Development Policy and how it pertains to the add-on that you've developed, please don't hesitate to email us at WoWUI@blizzard.com.

Conditionals - How do they work? 5. Scripting - What is possible in a macro? 6. Macros - Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts 7. Off-GCD Abilities List 8. More to Come 9. FAQ 10. Reserved 1. Intro - Macro Basics Macros are a very useful tool within the World of Warcraft client. They allow you to combine multiple actions onto a single button. While the entire macro will run every time, actions which trigger the Global Cooldown will stop later GCD actions from functioning. You can make a macro to take almost any action you can click or keybind, with certain restrictions. Macro commands can be made more useful with [conditionals], snippets that check on various things to allow a small degree of decision making. While macros stop at the first valid item from the top down, individual commands stop at the first valid conditional, from left to right. Macros can be used to execute scripts, small snippets of Lua code, from within WoW without the use of an external addon. This is done by using the /run command. Scripting is an advanced feature and is explained more in detail in post 5. There are a number of tips, tricks, and shortcuts to help you get the most out of your macros. Most of the ones listed have come from this very forum, and I have consolidated them here to make it easier. My intention is to continue to expand this post with more useful information over time, so feel free to add a post with any questions or useful information you think I should add.Adreaver261 Jul 5

9m /tar to target next target with same name? is there a way to target the next mob with the same name? for instance if i use </tar fe> to target anything beginning with "Fe" then i run it again, it will select the same target, even if there are two of target with the same name such as two different Felhounds. but if i need it to target the next enemy with the same name how could i get it to pass the first enemy targeted? i do understand that tab targeting is a thing, but i also know it can not be placed in a macro or be used from an addon so it is out of the question as a solution.Druidmenace9 9m

1h Simple Warbreaker macro help please Hello I am trying to macro Cleave and Warbreaker into a single button, and I cant seem to get it to work.

6h Need assistance with a druid form macro Howdy, I recently started a druid, and was wondering if it's possible to make a macro that would do the following; Attempt to transform into travel form. If using this macro indoors/in a dungeon where travel form is not available, cast cat form instead. Anyone able to help with this, if it's possible? Greatly appreciate any response! ~LilLillin2 6h
7h Targeting: Mouseover vs. Selecting I'm working on maintaining my DoTs on adds during raids. Since Tab-targetting doesn't seem to be the most effective for me, I'm looking into alternatives. Two that I got from my class discord was using mouseover macros and selecting via customized nameplates. Are there add-ons for mouseover targeting? Or do people just write macros? What is the advantage of mouseover targeting versus just selecting the mob? You get to maintain a targeting lock on your main target while keeping dots up on the adds? With regards to customizing name plates, what should I be looking to do? There are a lot of variables I can adjust but having no experience on what I can do with them, it will be trial and error at first. And while I may find something that I like, there's no way to know if that is in fact the optimal set-up. Is it worth asking other Shadow Priests for their name plate profiles? Thank you in advance.Igniferroque4 7h
7h Yet Another API Issue GetSpellCooldown() http://wow.gamepedia.com/API_GetSpellCooldown This is supposed to return the cooldown start, duration, enabledIndicator, and modRate for a given ability. I'm finding that it does not, precisely. Through experimentation, I'm finding that the GCD cooldown is returned first (not as separate fields, it is returned until GCD is no longer relevant for this ability - THEN you get the cooldown data for your specific ability, even when the ability is NOT ON GCD). For Berserker Rage (18499), I get one return of 0.00, 0.00, 1, 1, then I get the correct data after (<start time>, 60.00, 1, 1). It's not on GCD, so I am assuming that 0.00, 0.00, 1, 1 is the relevant GCD information for this ability. For Thunder Clap (6343), I get <start time>, <remaining GCD time>, 1, 1 until GCD is complete, then I get <same start time>, <remaining ability-specific cooldown time>, 1, 1 until that is complete. How the <insert profane word referring to intercourse> do I get the ACTUAL <insert same word in gerund form> cooldown data without the GCD <insert profane word referring to excrement>? I'm thinking I may have to pull the GCD cooldown separately and add it to my cooldown remaining on the target ability, but <insert profane reference to deity> that's an awful way to have to do this. Am I missing something?Istrebiteli0 7h

9h Bartender4 - Remove All Additions Hello all, I've been teaching myself how to use Bartender4 over the last few days, but I'm afraid I made a mess of things. I'd like to reset everything I've altered, but so far I can see no hard-reset option. Deleting the add-on (including all altered files) did nothing either; nor did activating the default Blizzard UI interface.

14h Need a little help with a simple addon It's a fairly simple addon. I'll post the code then explain it below the code: local MINING_GLOVES = "Grips of Damnation" local HERBALISM_GLOVES = "Forager's Gloves" local COMBAT_GLOVES = "Gorepetal's Gentle Grasp" local HERBALISM_TEXT = "Herbalism" local MINING_TEXT = "Mining" local GameTooltip = GameTooltip local GameTooltipTextLeft2 = GameTooltipTextLeft2 local EquipItemByName = EquipItemByName local Fighting = 2 local GGframe = CreateFrame("FRAME"); GGframe:RegisterEvent("LOOT_CLOSED"); local function ScanTooltip() if GameTooltip:NumLines() ~= 2 then return end local text = GameTooltipTextLeft2:GetText() if UnitAffectingCombat("player") then else if text:find(MINING_TEXT) then inFight() if Fighting == 3 then elseif Fighting == 4 then EquipItemByName(MINING_GLOVES) inFight() if Fighting == 3 then elseif Fighting == 4 then if event == "LOOT_CLOSED" then EquipItemByName(COMBAT_GLOVES) else C_Timer.After(5, CombatGloves) end end end elseif text:find(HERBALISM_TEXT) then inFight() if Fighting == 3 then elseif Fighting == 4 then EquipItemByName(HERBALISM_GLOVES) inFight() if Fighting == 3 then elseif Fighting == 4 then if event == "LOOT_CLOSED" then EquipItemByName(COMBAT_GLOVES) else C_Timer.After(5, CombatGloves) end end end end end end function CombatGloves() if UnitAffectingCombat("player") then C_Timer.After(5, CombatGloves) else EquipItemByName(COMBAT_GLOVES) end end function inFight() if UnitAffectingCombat("player") then Fighting = 3 else Fighting = 4 end end GGframe:SetScript("OnEvent", GGframe.OnEvent); GameTooltip:HookScript("OnTooltipSetDefaultAnchor", function(self) self:SetWidth(1) end) GameTooltip:HookScript("OnSizeChanged", ScanTooltip) Okay so... What I'm trying to accomplish is a simple glove switching addon for gathering. I've pieced together what I currently have and been learning how to do this on the fly (sorry if the code is a mess). What it currently does: When I hover over an herb or ore node, it checks the tooltip to see if it says "Herbalism" or "Mining". If it says herbalism, it checks to see if you are in combat. If you are, it does nothing. If you aren't it equips the gloves typed in for the herbalism slot. Mining does the mining gloves. It then waits 5 seconds, and checks to see if you are in combat (and goes into a loop, checking the combat every 5 seconds) until you are out of combat so it can equip the Combat Gloves. What I want it to do: An extra step that equips gloves as the loot window closes. So, you hover over a node, it equips your gloves, you swoop down and grab it, and then once the window closes, instead of waiting the next 2-3 secs, it equips your combat gloves right then. The problem I'm having: I can make it activate when the loot window closes. I can make it activate on a timer that waits 5 seconds. I can NOT for the life of me figure out how to do both. I'd like it to activate with the timer, and then if the loot window closes before the 5 seconds are up then the timer becomes obsolete and it equips the combat gloves right then. Right now, with the current code, it completely skips over the loot window closing and equips gloves after 5 seconds. I've been trying to figure this out on my own without having anyone else write it for me, but this is as far as I've been able to get. If anyone knows a solution, I'd really appreciate it =-bDeluneth13 14h

1d Quartz LUA Error After some time, I reinstalled Quartz (3), it works just fine on casters, however, upon logging onto my Warrior, I kept getting spammed with this LUA error; ... This is extremely annoying because, although I've attempted to disable quite a few addons, and I'm left with this LUA error in specific. This is not a problem on any other of my casters, only melee seem to cause this error. I apologize if this isn't the right section for this, and I'd like to request being moved to the proper section if this isn't. I've attempted to troubleshoot and diagnose the problem to no avail, which I'm normally able to do. Any advice or tips would be appreciated.Lazurianis2 1d

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with this Macro? /cast Nemesis /cast [@player] Metamorphosis I don't know why, but I just can't get the whole thing to run. Written as it is, Meta won't cast, but if I add Felblade to it, Meta will cast but Felblade won't. This is driving me nuts, and I just don't know what else needs to be done to it. It seems like anything after Nemesis just does not work.Felsriith8 1d
1d Racial macro Would it be possible to make a macro that shows a tooltip and icon for my current active racial? Normally it'd be arcane torrent but when I merc it changes to shadowmeld. I can make a simple macro that uses the appropriate racial, but can only get it to show the tooltip for the first ability in the line.Lurhan7 1d
1d Blizz breaking Enemy Grid? Just noticed that this was snuck in on the patch notes: "Addons can no longer perform actions on nameplate tokens." Does this mean addons like Enemy Grid that pull in all the name plates into a tidy list will no longer work? This is a huge annoyance for DoT classes. Feels like finally someone came up with a better system for managing DoTs and they just go and break it? Why?! Nameplates have always been bad UI design for DoT tracking. They clip, they overlap, tabbing doesnt work well, Ifs near impossible to pick out important targets in a AoE pack (the fel guards in BRH surrounded by 100 bats). Anyone else have a good alternative for DoT tracking if Enemy Grid is dead.Skeletonpete31 1d
1d DBM - How to relocate bars Hello, I've recently downloaded and installed DBM and after moving around and customizing the bars they suddenly turned into a cascade, at first is not noticeable but after some of then they stack in the middle of the screen and I cannot find a way to stack them in a line again. Here's an image of how do they look http://i.imgur.com/Dvi85T3.jpg It's important to note that this started after I checked the "Expand upward" option in the Bar Setup menu.Xtian5 1d
1d Exclude Buffs in Weakauras As the title mentions, I'm trying to exclude some buffs from showing in Weakauras. I have a dynamic group with progress bars running that show all buffs on my character (or any alts). Works fine. I'm trying to make a similar one that will go over my player unit frame (using Shadowed Unit Frames, but i don't like their square buff icons and it doesn't really affect WA). I cloned the working one and it definitely works like I want but... and here's the problem: I'm trying to exclude "buffs without duration" , like mount "buffs", the Mana Divining Stone buff, this week's Sign of the Skirmisher buff, etc., but show all the other ones, like Ironfur, or HoT spells (all of which do show up like they should). So, is there a check box I'm missing? does it need some fancy Lua code? thanks in advance for any help :) !Zujuli0 1d
2d Auction sold amount info addon So i'm looking at creating an addon that replaces the "A buyer has been found for your auction of x." messages that appear when someone buys your auctions. I'd like it to include the amount the auction sold for, the buyer, etc. My problem is all of the auction functions I can find seem to return NO values at all unless the actual auction UI is open. Otherwise they're blank. Is there no way to retrieve sold auction info from outside the AH? I'm aware I could do some elaborate setup where I save all the posted auctions locally in SavedVariables but i'd rather not do that much and just pull the information directly from the game. Is this possible somehow? Thanks.Katorie0 2d

2d Highlighting quest areas on quest map When I hover my cursor over a quest in my quest log, the area where the quest is supposed to be is highlighted which ruins some of the exploration for me. I had an addon called HIdeQuestArrow which got rid of the highlight, but it hasn't been updated in a long time. Further, since 7,2 went live, I can't read quest text in the quest log when HideQUestArrow is enabled, so it is better for me to disable it. Does anyone know of another way of hiding the automatic highlight when hovering over a quest? ThanksMikdra0 2d

2d Addons and everything reset Hi, I just turned off my computer and restarted it, and when I came back on WoW it reset everything including all of my addons. I spent months making hundreds of weakauras and perfecting my ElvUI addons, and I'm flatout not doing it again. I am so unbelievably frustrated by this. I can't play without them. I've tried checking to go back to a retore point but there ARE NONE for reasons I have no clue. Somebody PLEASE help. This is insane. I had so many weakauras saved and I can't remember them all. I'm not going to spend 3-4 months remaking them again just because I restarted my computer.Nozallakhazu9 2d

2d Button Forge: keybinds while hidden? With Button Forge you can have visibility modifiers set to specific bars. I'm currently using this: [combat]show; [mod:alt]show;hide It hides it unless I'm holding Alt or in combat. Unfortunately Button Forge disables keybinds on hidden action bars. You can modify opacity and there's even a gui on/off state that will keep keybinds, but I can't figure out how to apply that to the visibility modifier feature on individual action bars.Edwarten5 2d
2d Pitbull UI: How to not show Boss frame? I'm new to Pitbull UI and can't seem to figure out how to get rid of the Boss frame that shows up during Boss encounters on the top right. I DO like the default wow boss frame( which shows up underneath the pitbull frame), for its small and out of the way. Is there a way to disable the pitbull version and keep the wow one? ThanksSoilwork1 2d
2d PVP traits popping up on flight paths Not sure where to put this so if it needs moved please do so. My problem is I have done some pvp world quests to get the artifact and marks of honor for transmog gear but also I have unlocked some traits used only in pvp which is fine cause 99.9% of the time I am in pve areas but then I am on a flight path and all of a sudden as I fly over a pvp area the traits I unlocked pop up on my screen on my action bars messing up my settings how I have them arranged. Is there a way to stop the pvp traits from keep popping up on my screen and messing with my settings for action bars? Each time they do this I have to manually go into my interface settings and uncheck the bar that they popped on.Azerothwolf6 2d
2d I broke a tanking macro-unable to fix it So I'd been using this for years now. #showtooltip /castsequence reset=5 Thrash, Swipe, Swipe, Swipe, Moonfire ,Thrash, Swipe, Swipe, Swipe Last night, I accidentally hit the macro while in cat form as I was applying some AP to my kitty daggers. Now, whenever I'm back in bear form, the macro stops at the Swipe portion and tells me I need cat form. I redid the macro using a click on the swipe from the bear part of my spellbook, same problem. I even tried Swipe (Bear Form) but that failed (the macro did nothing). Not sure if maybe I needed like [Bear Form] instead of ( ). Any ideas how I can get this macro to once again use just the bear version of swipe? It actually has a different spellid than the cat swipe and for the life of me, I can't understand how this broke since I've used it for years and it's even been hit a few times while in cat form.Druidicus5 2d
3d create custom npc 'talking head' dialog box? Want to make a custom name, picture, and caption for the npc dialog boxes, also called talking heads often. Nothing in game, just want to make like a screen shot or something. Any googling I do about it often brings up people wanting to get rid of the box in game. There's addons called 'immersion' and stuff that create dialog boxes for pretty much every npc and quest, I'm just looking to make my own through some sort of image program.Veldorra0 3d

3d Stagger tracker in Weak Auras Was wondering if anyone's found a decent method of tracking stagger in weak auras, as it is now i'm having to use the high cpu thing and "exact name" for each tier of stagger, is there a better way or is this about as good as it's going to get for now? in the same vein, any way to have it display the stagger value? ie the x dmg/tick? edit: found the spell id's for the light/mod/heavy stagger ( 124275/124274/124273 respectively) but still having issues getting it to read it properly... and still more curious about getting a number value on the dot itself if anyone knows howHasanisabbah8 3d

3d ElvUI Interface broken after 7.2.5 Hello, So after installing the new patch 7.2.5 I logged into WoW and noticed that my interface was completely reset. I use ElvUI (Version 10.53) and it had reset my interface to default, was running the configuration/installation utility in a loop, and none of my saved profiles (which were available and functioning perfectly yesterday) were available. I've logged in with all addons turned off, with only ElvUI enabled, etc. - nothing has made any difference. I put in a ticket with the developers of ElvUI and the following is what I was told: "This is not caused by ElvUI, but by you (or something on your computer) touching the WTF folder where all settings are stored. Check the WTF folder, perhaps the WoW client created a new account name for you. If not then your profiles are lost unless you have a backup of the WTF folder." I checked my WTF folder and didn't find any new account names, and I was able to locate a backup of my entire WoW folder (including WTF) from 5/31, however when I replaced the current WTF folder with the one from my backup there was no change to my UI when I logged in. Others using ElvUI have had this same issue, but no resolution has presented itself which is why I'm posting here. I'm looking for any and all the help I can get. Thanks!Seterra13 3d
